A night Old Major,  the most important pig in the farm, tells to the other animals that he dreamed about a life without the Man, infact they are forced to work for him but they haven’t nothing, theyr lives are miserabile and short. After the Old Major death the animals didn’t know when the rebellion would take place, but they begin to prepare for it.Two pigs, Snowball and Napoleon elaborate the Old Major’s teaching and begin to teach the “animal rules” to the other.
After some months,the farmer, Mr Jones, gets so drunk that forget feeding his animals. They drive out from the farm Mr Jones and his men.
At the first the animals couldn’t believe in their fortune so they have a big meal together and then they destroy all that remembers them Mr Jones. Now the farm belongs to all the animals.They write on a wall the “seven commandments” that are the rules of living.
The new day begins with the harvest: the animal are quick and paceful and all through the summer the work of the farm goes like a clockwork.The work of the coming week is planned out and  resolutions are debated toghether.
